Signs of spring

A couple of weeks ago Dar, over at Princess Scooterpie, issued a challenge to post any sign of spring in our respective necks of the woods. Looking out at snow everywhere and temperatures below zero (on both C and F scales!) all I could do was enjoy everyone else’s postings vicariously as it seemed spring was going to be a long time coming in this area.
But then I thought, “What is the real sign of spring for a motorcyclist?” It’s not the first sprig of green grass, or the flowering tulip beds. No, it’s even earlier than that, when you start getting your bike ready for the upcoming riding season. And even earlier than that, when you start getting your garage ready to start getting your bike ready for the upcoming riding season.
So here is my first sign of spring post from the (still) frozen north. (Click on image.)

  2. Canajun - you are a cleaning machine ... I'm thinking the garage must be heated (which means, you know, you could have done it any time ... didn't have to put if off 'til spring :-D) How are you at storage rooms?

    1. It's always best to leave things until the last minute. If I'd cleaned it up a month ago I'd just have to do it again anyway. This way saves work. :) As for storage rooms - shhhhh, that's still on my honey-do list.

    Please make more just like it. I'd like shoveling the driveway next.

    1. Shoveling the driveway may have to wait until tomorrow - 15 cm of snow forecast. :-(

  8. For me it's when I take the insulated liner out of the leather riding jacket
